Patients and CareGivers

We view our patients and their families as one single unit of care, with their own unique physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs.

Help Us Help Others

The Connecticut Hospice is stepping in to take non-COVID-19 patients displaced from overcrowded New Haven area hospitals.

Most of these patients will probably be in the last few days or weeks of life, but we will step up to help wherever we can. Many of you perhaps do not realize that we hold an acute-care specialty hospital license, as well as hospice and home care licenses. You also may not know that Connecticut has the fewest hospital beds per person among the New England states, and among the lowest in the country. That ensures that our 52 beds will be important in the fight against COVID-19.

Help us keep our staff safe and healthy. Your donation will help purchase; masks, gloves, thermometers and scrubs

Hospice Care

Hospice provides compassionate, comfort-oriented care with an emphasis on pain management and symptom control for individuals with terminal illnesses, as well as spiritual and emotional support for patients and their families.

Palliative Care

Palliative Care helps people complete conventional disease-modifying treatments by keeping them informed, in control, out of pain, and supported.

Palliative Care Explained

Comprehensive Support

Our hospice and palliative care programs provide comprehensive, coordinated care that includes expert medical care, pain management, informational counseling on health directives, emotional and spiritual support, and family services such as respite care and bereavement groups.

We treat our patients holistically as they navigate the changes and challenges that accompany life-threatening illnesses. Our interdisciplinary team works together to provide customized plans of care that address physical, emotional, social, and spiritual support.

We offer experienced, comprehensive support and clinical care from the day of diagnosis, through active treatment, to end of life.

When's the Right Time?

Palliative and hospice care can help patients at any stage of a progressive or acute illness, from diagnosis through treatment, to end of life, and are most beneficial for improving quality of life when they are provided for months rather than weeks or days.
